Posted in Cheek, Riddle, Surnames with tags , , on July 23, 2009 by Ginger Smith

This week I was contacted by a Cheek family descendant that is tied into my Riddle family of Laurens Co., SC. She contacted me through my family tree that is posted on http://www.geni.com. She must have a premium account with them because I don’t think you can contact other non-family members without paying for that service. Our connection is Willis Cheek who was the father of Levi Cheek who married William Riddle in Laurens Co., SC. She is descended from Levi’s half brother Willis Abram Cheek. She has an online tree posted to Ancestry.com. I downloaded information from her tree, including a photo of Willis Abram Cheek, into my Family Tree Maker software. She commented that the Cheeks had dark curly hair. They also have dark eyes and soft facial features. I told her that my Greenlee looked similarly as a young man.
